I'm close to submitting Part II.
To keep the component diagram managable I plan to have just a couple of token 'Any JSP's.
I have a separate navigation diagram showing all the main JSPs and the route through them for most of the use cases.
On the component diagram I also show only the most important entity beans - those accessed directly from the session beans and the one BMP bean. All the beans and their relationships are shown on the class diagram.
Is this a bad idea? I've read quite a few comments that absolutely everything has to be on the component diagram.

In a real world scenario, component diagrams are handed over to the developers to help them get the "big picture". I guess it is fine just to show all JSP components as one cluster. Although I have not submitted my assignment yet, I have drawn mine using a rule of thumb - if a component is not architecturally significant, then it has no place in the component diagram. You may opt to completely omit them, or just represent them as a single entity. Make sure you represent everything the assignment asks for.
